Little Lake Titicaca

I was working on my travel guides for Peru the other day and while going through my photos I realized that I had a lot of really cool images that just need to edited a little bit.  On of my favourite photos I came across was this image of a group I was with at the time travelling on a reed boat in the Uros Islands of Lake Titicaca. I’ll be one to admit that my knowledge of the lake, before studying in University, was thin.  I...

Punta Sal, Peru – Nothing Beats a Beach Day

Punta Sal, Peru - Nothing Beat a Beach Day —————————————————– One could feel guilty, I suppose, spending three days on the beach, relaxing, drinking dollar-fifty beers, and swimming around in modestly warm water. One could feel guilty, but there are far too few people around here for anyone to notice your guilt. So just relax...
